Tim McNulty Workshop Description: Images as Windows (Saturday, March 24, 1-3P at SPLAB)
In our workshop we’ll explore the power of images to convey meaning, nuance and mood in our poems. We’re review some poems that rely on images, and we’ll jot some images in our notebooks recollected from the past few days. If time permits, we may venture outdoors to gather a few fresh notes from the neighborhood. Then we’ll try an exercise or two that will coax our rough notes into a poem. If everyone is willing, we’ll share some of our works-in-progress. No preparation is necessary, but a pen and notebook are handy – and a willingness to open ourselves to the world outside ourselves.
